Psychology: The Five Trader Personality Types, Which One Are You?

Psychology: The Five Trader Personality Types, Which One Are You?

I’ve learned from over a dozen years as a coach to top traders that traders, like criminals, can be profiled (no offense.)  In fact, just 5 Trader Personality Types encompass all the personality variations I’ve ever encountered, if one includes hybrids. (By the way, these five types have nothing in common with standard academic or corporate personality models.) Over the last 5 weeks I’ve...

Not a Bad Day For a Tuesday

And the beat goes on … The S&P 500 will try again today to close over 2000 for the first time in history. Will it make it? It is hard to say, as many still view the market as top-heavy, overvalued, and bubbly, which could mean some profit taking. The S&P 500 earned $29.45 last quarter. That's 11.7% stronger than the year-ago figure of $26.36. It's also a bit better than the estimates...

Stocks: Lack Of Volume And Confirmation Waves Warning Flag

Stocks: Lack Of Volume And Confirmation Waves Warning Flag

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that the small caps had room to run and the expected target was 116-118.  IWM  iShares Russell 2000 Index (ETF) is now at the lower end of the range, but it has traded in a very suspicious manner. In the past, when the other U.S. indexes pushed higher like we have seen and the small caps lagged, they would then go into a euphoria style move and play catch...

For Phase I of Markets re-design, we are introducing simple OHLC bar charts with a volume histogram.

To adjust the period and scale of the chart, use the "slider" bar which appears underneath the Volume histogram frame. If the slider frame is not appearing, you may need to adjust the 'Zoom' view of your internet browser or adjust your screen resolution to a lower resolution.

By dragging the start and end arrows of the slider bar to the left and right, you can easily adjust the date range.

Features planned for Phase II will include a selection of chart types and a technical indicator library with the ability to define a custom date range for the chart data.
